La Petite vie
The stories of La Petite Vie, sketch and television show, revolve around the strange couple simply known as Pôpa and Môman (Quebec Joual for dad and mom). The sketch was memorable for the pillow talk scenes with the beds comically placed straight up so the actors, seemingly laid on the bed but still standing, would be clearly visible to the theater public. This would be kept in the sitcom, where the context made it even more surreal. While the sketch only featured the couple, the sitcom introduced a vast array of relatives, creating a caricature of the Québécois working class family, a very bizarre but endearing one.
